Coronado News and syndicated editorial cartoonist Lisa Benson is the latest to opine how California Gov. Gavin Newsom seems to not care about the massive international sewage crisis affecting Imperial Beach and Coronado.
We found Carolyn Rogerson’s Op-Ed “Where are the Democrats in the Sewage Crisis?” to be divisive and uninformed. Our community is 100% united and in common cause to find the answers to this increasing threat to the community – the poisonous sewage closing our beaches and sickening our population. In recent years, this alarming influx […]
It’s too bad sewage on our beaches, an issue that is as nonpartisan as it gets, is being painted with partisan brush. (See the September 15 op-ed “Where are the Democrats in the ongoing Tijuana River sewage crisis?) To blame the Democrats and divide our community around this public health crisis is counterproductive. Instead, we […]
We have now passed the 18-month point of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. While it will take years to unpack all of the lessons learned from this conflict, some things have already become clear. Topping that list is the use of uncrewed systems in this conflict. The media has been all but saturated with stories regarding […]
While the governor often attempts to portray himself as “a man of the people,” he does so at the expense of the 27,000-plus residents in the state’s most southwesterly city,
On Sept. 1, a rally was held at Coronado’s Central Beach to call attention to the ocean water contamination due to continued sewage spills from Tijuana. Imperial Beach has been dramatically impacted by this sewage crisis for decades and Coronado has suffered ocean water contamination at an increased rate these past several years. Where were […]
I want to start off by thanking The Coronado News and Dennis Wagner for taking the time to actually come and visit an Awaken service so that he could convey what others can expect from a Coronado Awaken campus.
The executive director of Facilitating Access to Coordinated Transportation (FACT) Inc. gives a shout out to Coronado Councilman John Duncan.
“Bonanza,” the first color TV show, first aired on Sept. 12, 1959, and it ran 14 seasons to Jan. 16, 1973. It was the second longest Western in broadcast history recounting the fictional story of the Cartwrights, a family of ranchers living on the bountiful Ponderosa Ranch in the mid- 1800s, near Virginia City, Nevada. The […]
She raises her eyebrow and gives me the look. “What? What!”, I respond, exasperated. Wordlessly, she looks down at my shoes. Ahhh, yes. My shoes. My daughter isn’t registering her disapproval about my choice of footwear, she’s registering a comment about the fact that I even have shoes on, at all. Indoors. Inside. Namely, indoors, […]
Your recent piece on the Awaken Church raised the question whether it is properly considered a “cult.” Comparing Awaken to the Wikipedia definition is instructive: A cult is a relatively small group typically led by a charismatic and self-appointed leader, who excessively controls its members, requiring unwavering devotion to a set of beliefs and practices […]

Newspapers around the country are cutting back on political cartoons, but not The Coronado News. Here’s a sampling from Lisa Benson and Jack Ohman, our two syndicated cartoonists, and Liam Simonelli, an intern for CounterpointSyndication.com.
This is Bristol Bay, Alaska, home to the largest sockeye salmon fishery in the world, and I have spent every summer of my life living and working among its rugged beauty with my family.
The South Bay International Wastewater Treatment Plant (SBIWTP) does not discharge or divert untreated sewage into the ocean. While flows into the SBIWTP have averaged 8% above the plant’s design capacity over the past seven months, all flows into the plant are still treated and discharged through a pipeline to 3.5 miles offshore. Furthermore, environmental […]
Watching jets land and planes take off from the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier under the brightest stars I’ve ever seen was a sight I never want to forget. I was a part of seven other journalists from San Diego, Orange County, Belgium and France that had the opportunity to spend a night on the […]
